Memorial Union Tripp Commons Wedding {Liesl + Emmett}

Liesl and Emmett are have an extraordinary resilience and love. During the months before their wedding, Emmett’s father was diagnosed with the cancer that would ultimately take his life.  Seemingly by sheer force of will, he was able to celebrate Liesl and Emmett’s wedding on a beautiful sunny day. I am humbled by the joy and happiness that Liesl and Emmett bring to all their days, and particularly to their wedding day. I can think of no better way to celebrate life and all its hardships and joys than hand in hand with the ones you love, dancing. Thank you…
